Malghe and Mountains

Baito d’Ortigara

This baito is located at an elevation of 1400 m and is surrounded by ample pastures and secular beech trees. You can reach this malga either from Prada or from Due Pozze, following the military road or the n° 655 path.

Near Ortigara there is the church of Madonna della Neve dated 1663 and built by the Marquises Carlotti who took refuge here to escape the plague of 1630. Every year on the 5th of August there is a beautiful festival, very much felt in the popular tradition.
